About Around Town DC

The inception of Around Town DC stems from a common issue: older adults don’t know about the programs and services available to them.

This problem is especially true in the upper North West quadrant of Washington, DC and neighborhoods west of Rock Creek Park, because no brick and mortar senior wellness center serves as a central location for neighbors to get information.

In June 2018, the Department of Aging and Community Living granted funding to Iona to address this ongoing challenge and build a website platform to help older adults in Wards 2 and 3 find activities.
